According to the American Idol 2013 schedule we’ll be treated to the first in the series of weekly finalist performance and elimination shows working us down to the big season finale on May 15th and 16th.
This week on American Idol the Top 10 finalists – check out their photo gallery here – will performing songs from past American Idol winners. We’ve made our Top 10 song recommendations for what we’d like to hear performed this week but unless there are early spoilers leaked we’ll have to wait until performance night to see what each of the finalists pick.
Wednesday night will offer up a two-hour performance show on FOX starting at 8PM ET/PT where each of the Top 10 will have a chance to perform one song before the show ends and the voting begins.
Then the next night, Thursday, there will be a one-hour results show on FOX at 8PM ET/PT. Host Ryan Seacrest will dim the lights, open the envelope, and send the first American Idol 2013 finalist home to the sound of Phillip Phillips’ “Gone, Gone, Gone” single performed live by Phillips. Plus we’ll also get a performance from Bon Jovi with their new single “Because We Can.”
The season finally really feels like it’s getting started this week as the big eliminations take place and the field narrows as we prepare for the American Idol 2013 winner to be crowned. Are you ready?!
